This has been a long road for the Falcon Heavy, but SpaceX appears to be moving swiftly, following the successful static fire test earlier this week. It’s worth mentioning that this launch date is not set in stone; there’s a Falcon 9 launch that must happen next week to clear the way for the Falcon Heavy. Still, it’s exciting to have an actual date after so much waiting.
Update 1/27: Elon Musk has confirmed that SpaceX is “aiming for” a February 6th launch.
Aiming for first flight of Falcon Heavy on Feb 6 from Apollo launchpad 39A at Cape Kennedy. Easy viewing from the public causeway.
